According to Fitbie, “So-called “zero-calorie” foods, like celery and cucumbers, contain fewer calories than the body uses to break them down. And although nutritionists account for the energy it takes to chew and digest them when they calculate how many calories we need, these eats deserve prime spots on our plates. You can eat them in large quantities without busting your gut, and low-calorie doesn’t mean low nutrients.”

As regular readers know, I like infographics. I am amazed at how much information they can communicate in a very short space. I hope you enjoy this one – one of the best I have seen.
Eat less; move more; live longer. Words to live by.
I ran across these on Pinterest and thought you might enjoy them. The only one I would like to add is: Less Driving, More Biking.
Because most nutrition labels give the sugar content in grams, here is the translation:
Grams to teaspoons: There are 4.2 grams of sugar in one teaspoon.
In case it isn’t obvious to you in the section – 385 Calories consumed daily from added sugars…. It is the combination of the four exercises mentioned: walking, basketball, biking and jogging to burn off those 385 calories, not any single one of them.
You can take a very cool quiz on sugar right now. I posted it earlier this week.
